PREFATORY NOTE. 



The present volume contains an alphabetical digest of the Register of 
Marriages of the Parish of Edinburgh for the years 1 701-1750 inclusive, 
and is in continuation of the previous volume issued by the Society 
covering the earlier period of that Register — from 1595 to 1700— the 
portion of the original Register now dealt with being contained in the 
latter part of Volume III., the whole of Volumes IV. and V., and the first 
half of Volume VI. Like the former, this volume is printed by the kind 
permission of Sir Stair Agnew, K.C.B., Registrar-General and Keeper of 
the Public Records of Scotland. 

Shortly before 1700 the entries in the Register begin to expand by 
giving in most cases not only the names of the bride and bridegroom, 
but also the names of their parents, with occasionally other particulars, 
including dates of proclamation and marriage, and payments of sums of 
money. It should be remembered by those consulting the following 
Index that only under the male entries is the full information contained 
in the Register given, and those consulting it under female names must 
refer to the corresponding entry under the bridegroom's name to obtain 
the details given in the Register. 

With respect to the dates of proclamation and marriage, sometimes 
the Register only gives one, in which case it is probably the date of 
booking for proclamation. In the entry of the female, where two dates 
are given, only one, that of marriage, has been inserted. In some cases 
a considerable discrepancy occurs between the dates of proclamation and 
marriage, and probably it is the latter that is at fault, as the registrar 
seems occasionally to have inserted wrong months and years. 

In or about 1738 sums of money begin to be inserted in the margin 
of the Register, sometimes in Sterling and sometimes in Scots reckoning, 
and which is not always apparent. The amounts vary, so that it is not 
easy to determine whether the amount is a booking fee or a free-will 
donation to the poor, or both. That a fee was uplifted may be inferred 
from the insertion against some entries of the word ^^ gratis y Sometimes 
also note is made of the re-delivery to parties of pledges or "pawns" con- 
signed in the hands of the Session-Clerk. 

To economise space, use has been made of the following abbreviations 
for some constantly recurring terms : — s. = son ; d. --^ daughter ; m. = 



iv Prefatory Note. 



married ; ser. = servant, servitor or servitrix ; indw. = indweller ; res. = 
residenter or residing ; p. or par. = parish ; L. = Leith ; N. L. p. = North 
Leith parish ; S. L. p. = South Leith parish ; N. E. p. = North-East Kirk 
parish; N. N. K. p. = New North Kirk parish; S. K. p. = South Kirk 
parish; S. E. p. = South-East Kirk parish; S. S. E. p. = South South-East 
Kirk parish ; S. W. p. = South- West Kirk parish ; W. K. p. -- West Kirk 
parish. 

In entries where more than one church is referred to {e.g. N. K. ; 
S. K. ; N. E. ; S. S. E.), proclamation was probably made in each of 
them ; and where such words occur as " except S. E. Kirk," proclamation 
was probably made in all the other churches, with the exception of those 
specified. H. P.
